Internal and External Audit

The best way to determine whether your Protective Data Security Plan (PDSP) is effective in addressing information security risks is via audit. We walk through the processes, documentation and requirements involved in both internal and external audits. We discuss how to prepare your staff for audit and how to fold audit findings back into improving security.

The session concludes with how to commission and implement penetration testing to find technical weak points in your IT services and infrastructure.
